About the Author

Sudie Rakusin is an artist and an ecofeminist. Her love and concern for the Earth and Her creatures influences all her choices and permeates her work. Her art has been widely reproduced in newspapers, magazines and calendars, and can be found in such books as The Once and Future Goddess by Elinor Gadon, Seasons of the Witch by Patricia Monaghan, and the Wickedary by Mary Daly. She has self-published color notecards of her paintings, and two blank journals containing her pen-and-ink drawings.

Sudie Rakusin works in oils, pen-and-ink, pencil and she is now sculpting in papier-mache. She lives in the woods outside Hillsborough, North Caolina, with her dog companions and her ever expanding gardens.

This isn't a coloring book for everyone. If you're at all offended by pagan-type images, don't bother with it. There are amazon and goddess images all the way through. A number of the images are also nude or semi-nude. If none of that bothers you, if in fact you're a pagan or pagan-friendly, or you're open to mythic images of women, then you might well enjoy this. The compositions range from simple to complex, and there is a nice diversity in the size, shape and racial characteristics of the figures.
The paper will take crayon, colored pencils, or markers with ease. I don't think I'd try painting in this (or any other) coloring book because the pages are just not heavy enough to resist some serious warping.
I have to say, I think it's a bit thin over-all. A little text would have been a welcome addition or even a space for you to create your own story about the image. But that's a small quibble. On the whole, I'm enjoying this book more than the others I bought at the same time.

The pictures in this book are wonderful and fun to color, but the paper used is too thin and anything but crayon or colored pencil shows right through to the next page ruining the next picture! I wish they had spent the extra money on extra thick paper.

I was really disappointed with this coloring book. The pictures are pretty new-age cheesy and there is so much black print in the pictures that there is very little left to color. It's like a collection of photo-copies of sci-fi/new age prints. Not very appealing, even to a Goddess-loving gal like myself.

It feels like being a kid again... intricate and playful. I enjoyed going back to my kid-roots and being nostalgic. This coloring book is a great after work stress buster!

I have been coloring most of my life...first as a child, then as a mother with my children, and I still try to color daily at age 68. I found the Big Girl Coloring Books about 6 years ago. I have stacks of coloring books that I use, but I always go back to 'The Big Girl books' by Sudie Rakusin. They are liberating. They free me to color a pink elephant, and a purple cow and not have to explain my choice. I have learned so much about shading and color choices over the years, and I'm still experimenting with color. I have just ordered my fourth set of coloring books by Sudie, the other books are full. I would love to have a third book in the series.
Thanks for giving me a free spirit. I love your style.
